Tie Quilt Finished!

A few weeks ago I mentioned that I was commissioned to do a quilt from men's ties.  Above is the finished quilt.  The client did not want the ties to be cut up, she wanted to see the majority of the ties because they had so much meaning to them.  The quilt measures 40" square and the binding is made from the ties as well (even though its hard to see).  It was a fun quilt to make and I especially like the echo quilting.  It was also quilted in the ditch on all the tie seams.  The center circle was made from the bow ties that were included.  I have to say that there are some gorgeous fabrics in ties, just keep an open mind and they can make a beautiful quilt!

Until the next post Happy Quilting!
